The Book of Acts tells stories about God’s Spirit doing big things. Our story this Sunday contains one of the biggest shifts the early church experienced. The disciples are surprised and amazed at what God’s power can do!
Have you ever wondered how to tell if God is moving? How can we discover what God is up to or if an idea is from God? And once we discover that God is moving, what is our role?
Acts 10:44-48 (CEB)
While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit fell on everyone who heard the word. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. They heard them speaking in other languages and praising God. Peter asked, “These people have received the Holy Spirit just as we have. Surely no one can stop them from being baptized with water, can they?” He directed that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they invited Peter to stay for several days.
